High Performance Alloys: A Global Strategic Business Report

The need for superior performance, efficiency, and durability in products, ranging from golf equipments to sophisticated high-tech, supersonic jet engines and spacecrafts, is fashioning a strong demand for high-grade, super-tensile, high performance alloys. Industries like transportation, consumer appliances, leisure, and industrial manufacturing, are generating increased demand for high performance alloys. The shifting focus of energy generation from coal-fired power stations to gas turbine generators is wielding a multiplier effect on market opportunities. For instance, energy deregulation induced development of infrastructure for gas turbine industrial plants, which is presently underway, is directly translating into demand for customized high performance alloys with specifically optimized mechanical properties. In addition to the transportation industry, lightweight alloys have recently begun making rapid inroads into the domestic appliance market, given the growing trend of miniaturization in consumer products such as mobile telephones and vacuum cleaners. In the transportation industry, demand for lighter vehicles, and automotive components with high stress threshold, are nurturing overall consumption of high performance alloys. Stringent environmental regulations, and the quest for a cleaner environment, together are accelerating the demand for advanced alloys used in the construction of both gas turbines and automotive vehicles. All of these factors, among several others, lay down strong fundamentals for future market growth and sustenance.
